Italian legend Francesco Totti has hinted that the upcoming season with Roma could be his last, and that he may consider hanging up his boots at the end, according to Sky Sports.

Totti is amongst a very select few who define loyalty in the modern game. He has been a single-club player throughout the entirety of his carrer, and has rejected prestigious offers from clubs like Real Madrid and Barcelona.

The Roma man was an integral member of Italy’s World Cup triumph in 2006 in Germany, before retiring from international duty in 2007. Since then, he has been devoted to his club. The 36-year-old veteran has scored an incredible 282 goals in 678 games for the Italian side, having been there a staggering 21 seasons. His commitment earned him the affectionate nickname “King of Rome” for his unparalleled contribution and passion for Roma.

Totti sparked speculation about the end of his career when answering a question about Roma's new home shirt for the 2013/14 season. The iconic striker said: "I've worn a lot of them, but this is the last one."

The Italian veteran has worked wonders for both Roma and Italy and will always be favoured in his native country. With a season still ahead of him, fans will hope he will bow out on a high.
